An Apology

Sarah Mayberry - Friday, January 17, 2014

Dear Reader, this blog post is to apologise to you and humbly request your patience. You see, I was so sure that I would have my next self published book, Satisfaction, locked and loaded and ready to go in January that I came on here and talked about it. So cocky, Ms Mayberry, so cocky. The book was but a bee's dick away from being completed, and I was confident that that cockiness was not unwarranted.

Well.

As any writer will tell you, sometimes when you take a break from the work (Christmas, I'm looking at you) and come back to it, you can see things that you couldn't see before. And what I saw was a bunch of stuff I didn't like. Somehow, I had lost my way in telling Rafel and Georgie's story, and it has taken me the best part of a week to woman up and face the fact that I am going to have to do some serious pruning and rewriting to make this little puppy fly. I have a plan, and I am currently rewriting as fast as I can, but this means that there is no chance that I will have the book out this month. I'm aiming for late February, the stars being aligned.

I'm so sorry if I got anyone excited or expectant (and also extremely flattered if you were in either state), but I simply couldn't keep writing forward when my gut was screaming at me that I had gone wrong. My promise to you is that when this book does come out, it will be the best version of this story that I know how to tell. So if you'll just bear with me a little longer, Satisfaction will be with shortly. Ish.

It's not all bad news, though.

I got the cover for my April release today, and I'm going to share it with you now because it's rather gorgeous. I know it's winter in large parts of the world, but doesn't that water just make you want to swim ?(I'm writing this on a 40 degree + day in Melbourne, so go with me on this!) I had an enormous amount of fun writing about Vivian and Seth, and I cannot wait to share them with everyone. Roll on April, I say.

Until next time, happy reading!
